Running Afterburner at 866 core/ 1366vram. I was experiencing fps dips and 75c gpu temps 99% usage when sitting in misty areas of the game on recommended high settings, 2x antistropic with shadows low and disabled sunshafts cause they annoy me anyway. Also no SSO. We used to be able to run Ultra on everything with 30% usage lol. I was able to cut my GPU usage in half in all areas by lowering my refresh rate on my monitor in the NVIDIA panel. I had installed a matte 1080 screen a few months ago, looks great, although counter productive to GPU performance. I found that I am able to run my 1080 screen at 40hz. I also set wow to cut at 40fps. at the same settings GPU runs at 59C max in 25 man now. I figured this may be of some use to others. I can't remember what the 900p options were.

I am still seeing low fps in 25 man groups. GPU usage at 50-60% using only 730 mb Vram. However I see 60 to 80% CPU usage on 2 threads of my 2630QM. Spikes accompanied by a drop to 17 fps. I'm considering a 2860QM but so much $$$$$$. If only we had a unlocked bios...
